Importation of Non-EU second-hand vehicles arriving from Sicily by fast ferry services

The Customs Department would like to remind all economic operators and private individuals that all NON-EU vehicles, including goods, which arrive via Catamarans operating the Sicily-Malta route, which are intended to be put on the market or intended for private use or consumption, must be declared to Customs for free circulation prior/upon arrival and not after removing/driving them inland.  This latter action may be subject to legal action and possible seizure of vehicles/goods.

Therefore, economic operators and private individuals are being advised to notify Customs in advance to make the proper arrangements to transfer the vehicle to a Customs area upon arrival as per our current guidelines, which may be obtained from: customercare.customs@gov.mt; or dwq.customs@gov.mt (Tel: 21257071)
